True love can’t be strategized.
After book blogger Vivian Galdi’s longtime crush pretends their secret summer kissing sessions never happened, Vivian creates a list of safecrushes, determined to protect her heart.
But nerd-hot Dallas, the sweet new guy in town, sends the mission and Vivian’s zing meter into chaos. While designing software for the bookstore where Vivian works, Dallas wages a counter-mission.
Operation Replacement Crush is in full effect. And Dallas is determined to take her heart off the shelf.
So I decided to take a chance on a new YA author (new to me) and was pleasantly surprised but what I got.
This is a very sweet and funny read. Vivian is a book blogger and works in a bookstore with her mom (perfect!). But after her heart is crushed by the boy she’s been messing around with during the summer, she’s determined to never allow that to happen again.
Dallas is the new guy in town and is hired by Viv’s mom to help with the computer system. There’s an instant attraction between them but Viv is persistent and not allowing her heart to be broken again and keeps her distant.
While there were so moments that had me roll my eyes because her mission became a bit boring, overall I enjoyed this book. It was funny and innocent and the characters made me laugh at their interactions. While the whole scenario may not be realistic, it allows the reader to have a great laugh and enjoy a nice read.
